Prequals due for sulphur pipeline

10 February 2003
Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Company (Gasco) has invited companies to apply for prequalification by 17 February for the proposed liquid sulphur pipeline project (MEED 28:6:02; 29:3:02).

Estimated to be worth $80 million-90 million, the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract will include the supply and installation of a 120-kilometre pipeline and related civil works. The facilities will take about 15 months to complete.

The proposed pipeline will be designed to carry liquid sulphur from Habshan to Ruwais in Abu Dhabi emirate. At present, sulphur produced from phases 1-2 of the onshore gas development scheme and other projects is transported by truck.

A conceptual study for the pipeline was carried out by the US' Bechtel Corporation; the front-end engineering and design (FEED) package has been completed by The Parsons Corporation, also of the US. The project management consultant is US-based VECO.
